A few weeks ago, I went out for a friend’s birthday, and ordered a Matcha Gin Matsu cocktail, which looked absolutely delicious. When I ordered, the waiter asked “Do you like green tea ice cream?”, to which I responded with an enthusiastic yes (it’s my favourite). Much to my disappointment, the cocktail, though lovely, did not taste at all like green tea ice cream, and I went home determined to make my own green tea ice cream cocktail.
- 1 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream or other cream based liqueur
- 2 teaspoons matcha powder
- about 10 ice cubes OR 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
- dash of spirulina powder for colour (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender together and blend until smooth. Serves 2.
